ProSight Duo Identity Verification
Progent's ProSight Duo suite of services integrates advanced access security technology from Duo, a Cisco subsidiary, to offer two-factor authentication services. Two-factor authentication is one of the pillars of modern zero-trust network security strategy. 2FA utilizes separate channel ID verification to provide an additional layer of protection beyond traditional passwords. This counters the most frequent sources of cybersecurity break-ins such as phishing, brute-force password attacks, and stolen credentials.
Duo's one-touch Mobile Push app streamlines authentication
Duo's Push App minimizes time and hassle by permitting users to confirm their identity just by touching "Approve" on the validation box on their own iOS or Android smartphone or watch. This single-touch process does away with the need to retrieve an email or text message and transcribe a security code manually.
Progent's ProSight Duo line consists of three subscription-based services that build on one another. ProSight Duo MFA permits organizations to implement Duo's two-factor authentication platform to guard all applications while offering essential access tools, unified management, and fast endpoint provisioning. ProSight Duo Access supports all the features of ProSight Duo MFA and adds adaptive authentication controls and endpoint health checking. ProSight Duo Beyond adds the ability to identify company as distinct from personal endpoints, deny access to untrusted endpoints, and give users secure and seamless access to your internal apps. Progent is a certified Duo Managed Service Provider and can assist your business to design, implement and manage an advanced ID authentication solution that provides the highest level of access security without disrupting your users.
Most security break-ins involve compromised passwords. Every managed service offering in Progent's ProSight Duo line of identity validation solutions can reduce your dangerous dependence on password protection by supporting two-factor authentication. With 2FA implemented, when you log into a protected online account and enter your password you are asked to verify your identity by means of a device which you have sole possession of and that uses a separate ("out-of-band") network channel. A broad selection of devices can be utilized as your second form of authentication including an iOS or Android smartphone or watch, a token, a landline telephone, etc. You can enroll several different authentication devices.
ProSight Duo two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security
After you verify who you are using your out-of-band device, you are permitted to run your application or utilize your VPN or remote desktop service. With the Duo Mobile app's push notification feature enabled, you can simply touch "Approve" on your iOS or Android phone or smart watch. This improves the sign-on experience by making the verification procedure nearly instantaneous. For traditional secondary units, such as a token, you can copy a temporary passcode.
